Elephant


Sometimes there's an elephant in the room no one wants to tackle directly. Labor Day weekend there were six. I grabbed the elephant by the tusks, so to speak, and laid that formality to rest, one at a time. It was during one of our frequent trips to Wichita when I stopped at my favorite world-beer store and asked one of the very knowledgeable staff if they could think of a crisp lager that had an "ZOMG!punch" to it. I wasn't in the mood for a heavy or dark beer at the time, yet I wanted something more powerful than flavorful. He suggested Carlsberg Elephant and within each bottle I found both.

I hadn't seen it since.

Until Labor Day weekend, here at Newton Discount Liquor.

When there's so much to say, but no one to listen, talk to the elephant in the room.
